It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Janet Marie Munro. Marie passed away peacefully on November 22, 2014, after a courageous battle with cancer, with loved ones by her side.
Marie was born in Victoria B.C. on Feb 9, 1940. It was in Victoria that she met her handsome sailor, and the love of her life, Jerry Munro. Marie and Jerry were married on Oct 4, 1958, after a whirlwind romance. They had four daughters and they left the Island shortly thereafter. They shared a lifetime of adventures, in Vancouver, Rock Creek, Douglas Lake, back to Vancouver, before retiring together in Revelstoke B.C.
Marie enjoyed spending her days with her best friend Jerry, and cherished her children and grandchildren. She enjoyed a good book, game shows and family time with many laughs.
Marie was predeceased by her parents Alan & Mabel Stockley and daughter Tammy Scales. She is survived by her loving husband of 56 years Jerry; daughters Roxana Hoodikoff of Vancouver, Sharon (Jack) Boruch and Yvette (Doug) Pendergast of Revelstoke; 12 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren, and her loving sisters Yvonne (Bob) Leach & Carol (Ken) Heyworth of Victoria.
The family would like to thank all the amazing nurses & homecare providers for their gentle care. We would like to extend a special thank you to Dr. Chris MacDonald for all his care and support throughout her illness. In lieu of flowers, a donation to a charity of your choice in memory of Marie would be appreciated.
A celebration of life will be held for Marie in the spring of 2015.
